Dr. Weinschenk graduated from the University of Dayton with a BS & MS in Electrical Engineering. He also holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington. Dr. Weinschenk joined the Penn State Applied Research Laboratory (PSU-ARL) in 2004, where he served as a research engineer and principal investigator in the Autonomous Control and Intelligent Systems division and then a deputy department head for Intelligent Control Systems. In 2009, Jeff founded and led the Operations Research department, a new competency for PSU- ARL emphasizing the development of novel methodologies for concept development and characterization of the technological “art of the possible.” The Operations Research department has influenced Navy documents (such as the Fleet Unmanned Undersea Systems CONOPs), provided a foundational reference for technology trades in acquisition (e.g. Large Displacement Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Analysis of Alternatives), and worked to develop rigorous, game-theoretic tools for unmanned systems tactics development. Dr. Weinschenk oversees the laboratory’s competency in Unmanned Underwater Vehicles and application of associated enabling technologies. 

Full Description

We will have two speakers discussing new technology development for ROV's and AUV's. Dr. Weinschenk from Penn State will describe the Penn State Applied Research Lab’s nationally unique infrastructure for deep ocean testing and associated core competencies in Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), high energy density air-independent propulsion, synthetic aperture sonar, and autonomous control systems. Michael Greene from Teledyne Oil & Gas will introduce the concept of Active Flying Leads, how one simple concept turned into a family of products, and share why it is vital to the future of subsea oil production.  Michael will also describe how this new class of products can be used for both green fields and brown fields and the challenges that will be faced. His talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
